Copper Tripeptide: has been well documented to improve the healing of various types of skin lesions, such as scarring, sun, and acne damage, breaking down the abnormally large cross linked collagen and at the same time stimulating the production of regular collagen found in normal skin. In other words, copper tripeptides in Cor’s Wrinkle Serum can help restore a damaged area to its original healthy state.
In addition, all three lotions have the following base ingredients:
Palmitoyl Pentapeptide (PP): A unique and fairly new molecule that has been shown to imitate the skin’s natural rejuvenation process, stimulating renewal and natural exfoliation of the skin’s surface without the use of harsh ingredients. PP regenerates the dermal layer by developing new collagen, elastin and glycosamainoglycans. PP not only renews the skin’s dermis layer, it also makes it noticeably thicker which adds to improved appearance of the skin and also has the added benefits of protecting itself against the harmful elements of the environment. Palmitoyl pentapeptide is a relatively small molecule, consisting of five amino acids (protein) linked together and attached to a fatty acid to enhance oil solubility for better skin penetration. Proponents, including scientists at Proctor & Gamble and Sederma (makers of Stri-Vectin), claim that PP is at least as effective against wrinkles as retinol while not causing skin irritation, a common side-effect of retinoids.
Acetyl Hexapeptide: is an amino peptide consisting of six linked amino acids. It relaxes muscle contraction and reduces the frequency of contractions. It has been shown to produce the positive results you might expect from Botox®, BUT without paralyzing the muscle, and in the friendly form of an everyday cream. After a few minutes of application, the skin feels more taut and “lifted”.
